6:45am
welcome back, 6:45. democrat ares won big in last week's election. not just with the president but also here in california, and san francisco examiner columnist is here to explain how redistricting played a big role. democrats won big, that's for sure. and in california, the difference between a political party isn't necessarily northern and southern california versus the middle, it's west versus east. we have a map showing how the parties voted in the 2008 election. and you see the john mccain supporters concentrated inland and the obama supporters on the coast. in 2010 we had a new census and we had a citizens redistricting commission that put together a new group of districts and the 2012 congress enjoyed those new districts and was able to pick up more seats along the coast
6:46am
because the districts follow more closely the partisan break down. so in 2012, democrats were able to pick up three seats and they actually pick up a 4th. that little yellow spot is a perfect example of this. that's district 7 where republican dan lungren has served since 2005. and it's a very close seat, brought to you by redistricting. >> the democrats are probably applauding now the election has come and gone. before it they were like don't do that. >> back in 2008, and again in 2010, that's when the ballot measures were up before voters so that we could create this independent commission instead of letting the legislature create their own lines. when that happened, the democrats were strongly against it. nancy pi rosie was against it
6:47am
-- pilosi was against it. on the other side, republicans including charles munger gave millions of dollars. >> so much was that theory. >> they're regretting that today i'm sure. >> do they have anything to be happy about. >> there were a couple of districts that put democrats against other democrats, so we had pete stark lost his seat thanks in no small part to redistricting. and we had howard berman lost his seat because he had to go against another democrat. there were two losses of veteran lawmakers, but overall they picked up a net gain of three sales, maybe more. >> and -- seats, maybe more. >> i would be remiss if i
6:48am
talked about american government and politics and said happy veteran's day to my two brothers, chris and eddy, they're having cool and served in the army as well as my father. the twitter question of the day is who would you like to wish happy veterans day to and mine is to my two brothers and my father. and we're greatful to everyone across the country. . well, apple settles paton disputes disputes and wall street is open for business. >> here to talk about that is jason brooks. >> good morning, this is a key deal are between htc and apple where they'll agree to settle the patent agreements together. they have settled smart phone technology with microsoft and
